I very recently bought a 1970 Chevelle SS396 with a 4 spd and console. I was hoping someone with experience with these cars could help me. Is there supposed to be a boot of some sort around the shifter(not the one screwed to the floor). The console looks unfinished the way it is. If so, does anyone know where I can get this part? Also, what color lens is supposed to be in the light that indicates that the emergency brake is on? Finally, is the air cleaner lid on a cowl induction hood supposed to be flat black or chrome? I am a Chevelle newbie and would greatly appreciate any answers from someone who knows about 70 Chevelles. Thank you!

Cortez Silver, I'll take a shot at the shifter. It sounds as though someone has decided to install a console where none existed, hence the boot screwed to the floor. The consoles are sold by several vendors, try our site sponsor Ground Up. Good Luck on your car and welcome to Team Chevelle, there are plenty of people here to help you.

Cortez Silver,
I will answer your last two questions.First the brake light lense should be red.Last the air cleaner cover should be black not chrome.

There is supposed to be a black plastic chute that sits down around the rubber boot and under the console top plate. I believe it is available through NPD or Ausley.

All of these items can be found in National Parts Depot,Ausley's Chevelle Parts,The Paddock,or Original Parts Group. These I know for sure. I'm new to Ground Up however, I'm sure that they are similiar. Hope this helps.
